LeBron James’ Mom Arrested for Allegedly Slapping Valet

In the wee hours of the morning Gloria James, LeBron James’ mom, allegedly slapped a valet on Miami Beach at Fountainbleau Hotel.

She attended the LIV nightclub with some friends where they drank and partied. At the end of the night an intoxicated Gloria went outside to retrieve her car from the parking valet. Apparently, he wasn’t moving quick enough for her so she began cursing at him and causing a scene which it’s said she allegedly gave the valet an open-handed slap. Drunk and upset, she slapped the parking attendant so hard that she fell over onto the ground. All of this happened right before 5a.m. According to the valet, he did get her car immediately but she was busy talking with her friends for half an hour so he returned the keys to the cashier. This is what sparked James’ anger and caused her to strike him.

The police were contacted and Gloria James was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor assault. (View the arrest report here) When questioned by the police about the incident, Gloria stated she ‘doesn’t trust their kind’ and is refusing to cooperate. This is not her first time getting arrested. Some years back in 2006, Gloria was arrested on a DUI charge in Akron, Ohio.

For this morning’s arrest, Gloria James was released and will later appear in court for the charges against her.
